About Sika

Hello! As you can see from my profile, my name is Sika. I'm originally from New Bern, NC although I'm currently a grad student at Penn State University (M.A. Communications). I tutored all through my years as an undergraduate at UNC Greensboro as well as the two years before I went to graduate school and have always found it very rewarding. I prefer to establish an ongoing relationship with those I tutor so that they not only feel comfortable learning with me but also if they need advice in the future.

I have the most experience tutoring math and have worked mostly with students from the ages of 12-15, though I've also done some test preparation for the GRE and SAT. I am also currently a teaching assistant so I'm very familiar with working with students to boost their comprehension and overall success, but I am also knowledgeable about the college preparation.

Math is a hard subject for a lot of people! In the years I've tutored, I've learned how to be patient and work with students at their pace. I aim for overall understanding of concepts rather than the ability to get the answer right (although of course that's also important!). Most of my experience is with 7th-8th grade general math as well as Precalculus, Prealgebra, and Algebra, but I am absolutely comfortable with both lower and higher levels.

Unfortunately, I have not had an extensive amount of experience tutoring English. It's a shame because English is my passion! I would love for the opportunity to tutor any student in reading and writing. These were not only what I excelled at throughout my schooling but what I genuinely had fun with. I've done minimal supplemental tutoring for students who also needed help with reading/writing comprehension and it was always what I enjoyed working on with them the most, so I would be honored to do that again.

Please feel free to contact me to find out more information!
